Symphony in White

I would like to say this painting is 
fresh off the easel,
but since I don't have an easel,
we'll call it fresh off the studio floor.
24x10 acrylic on wood



She stands alone now.
Free to invent her own life.
Symphony in white.



For more Haiku visit Rebecca's blog,

And for more Diva Art visit Inspiration Avenue.

Have a beautiful weekend...
Love, Lisa

  9. I'm amazed at how flawlessly the painting went with the Haiku. And I am truly in love with that painting. Is that a modeling/molding paste background? It looks like fresco, and I'm sure you planned it that way! Truly beautiful and that jewelry is SO detailed. Divine Diva, indeed.

  13. She is elegant and enigmatic--and has a trace of Frida Kahlo in her, I think. Thanks.

  17. She turned out as I expected-glorious! Also, the orb journal page is spectacular. Thanks for showing how you used the mica behind foil, to show 'glimpses' of your soul. Love that!
